NEET UG 2019 Admit cards will be issued to the candidates on April, 15. The candidates have already wrapped up the preparation for this prestigious 3 hours long medical entrance examination that provides an opportunity to get into the MBBS and BDS courses in the top reputed medical colleges in India. For the students, who are qualifying their 12th Grade this year or the ones who are already qualified and willing to give NEET UG exam another try in 2020, it’s time to buck up.
The enigmatic exam was earlier known as AIPMT and NEET UG question papercomprises of three sections – Biology, Physics and Chemistry. Being a medical student, it is comparitively easier to deal with the subjects Biology and Chemistry but when it comes to NEET UG physics, many students wobble during the preparation. In this blog, we will try to explore the tips, strategy and the right books that may help the NEET UG students overcome the fear while preparing for Physics.
Analysing the Importance and Weightage of Physics in NEET UG Exam
The NEET UG syllabus contains Biology question paper with a weightage of 360 marks and Physics and Chemistry with a weightage of 180 marks each. Digging into the NEET UG syllabus for physics, the questions will be asked from Standard 11 and Standard 12 Physics syllabus combinedly. You can’t say whether most of the questions in NEET UG physics exam will be from Standard 12 or Standard 11. Hence, comprehensive preparation for both the grades is recommended to crack the exam. The top 5 areas from which the most number of questions can be expected are Mechanics, Electrodynamics, Modern Physics, Heat and Thermodynamics and Optics. The difficulty level of the exam varies every year and hence you can’t predict it for the upcoming year. Apart from the above-mentioned areas, a significant number of questions are also asked from the SHM and Waves section. There can be 38-40% intermediate level questions, 24-25% tough questions and 34-36% easy questions. It’s important to analyse the NEET UG physics syllabus before gearing up for preparation.
Top 5 Tips to Tackle NEET UG Physics Paper in 2019/2020
Brush Up Your Concepts
You can’t climb a hill if you aren’t aware of the base or ground level. For every NEET UG aspirant, it is very important to clear the core concepts before making any complicated or hardcore strategy for preparation. Talking about NEET UG Physics, there will be more practical and numerical questions than theoretical. Mugging up in this scenario is not at all a wise option. The more you brush up your concepts, the more accuracy and confidence you will gain while solving Physics numerical and practical problems. Well, this doesn’t mean you overlook the theory part. They can be theory questions in NEET UG exam that may act as an opportunity to score better. So, cover everything, focus more on practical sections and have a clear concept of everything and every possibility.
Time management is not only required for NEET UG exam but an important part of all the entrance exams. It’s not just about your knowledge and accuracy all the time. How fast and how accurately you tackle the problems can help you shine on in the exam. You will get 180 minutes to complete your tackle your NEET UG Physics exam paper. Not a single minute extra! That’s what you need to keep yourself remembering. 180 minutes – 180 questions and each minute will be crucial for your performance. It’s good to practice numerical setting a timer to analyse your speed and accuracy.
Mock Test Papers – Adding to Your Success Probability
Mock Test Papers are a rescuer for almost every NEET UG aspirant for many years now. These test papers give you a comprehensive idea about the pattern or type of question paper. Some questions, practical or theoretical, can be repeated while some can be completely new to you. If possible, solve 90-95% of Physics NEET UG Mock Test papers of at 10 years. There will be least chance to miss a specific numerical type if you follow this strategy. Also, NEET UG Physics Online Test Series can build your confidence and chase away the fear of exam in you. This can be done at home or in a nearby cyber café.
Choosing the Right Books
Choosing the right books for NEET UG physics exam is a Pro advice, probably every previous year NEET UG topper will give you. Undoubtedly there is an abundance of NEET UG Physics Study Material available in the market but referring every source may confuse you. You must have a great understanding of your NCERT Physics before you proceed to refer any reference book. A book that has MCQ and theory-based questions and which is chosen by most of the NEET UG aspirants can be a reference book you can count on.
Count on Numericals, MCQ, Make Lists and Topic-Wise Preparation
Most of your NEET UG physics exam paper will comprise of numericals and multiple choice questions. If your concept of every topic is clear, and formulas are well-versed, you can easily tackle the numerical part of the paper. Now, when it comes to MCQs, one question has 4 or 5 options. You need to choose one. Sometimes, the options are too close to be single out in first go and hence you need comprehensive knowledge in this part. In some cases, you may have to guess an answer if you have partial knowledge of the topic. With loads of practice, your guessing ability also develops and turns fruitful while solving MCQs in NEET UG physics paper. During your NEET UG exam preparation for Physics, you can list the important formulas and sometimes specific problem patterns or types where you find your confidence shaking. This can be done chapter-wise. It will definitely help you during your performance in the exam. Topic-wise preparation is another big factor that is responsible for your NEET UG Physics exam performance. The major areas carrying huge weightage in the exam are:
Modern Physics gives you the best chances to score while Kinematics maintains your interest while preparation. The motion of System of Particles and Rigid Body can be a difficult part and hence you may have to dedicate a significant amount of time for this one.
The Final Verdict
There is no doubt that NEET UG Physics exam preparation is an uphill task and you need to push your limits for this, especially if your interest and strength lie in Biology and Chemistry. But, getting afraid, nervous and showing lack of confidence can’t be the key to success. If you choose NCERT books for theory part preparation and the right reference books for numerical and MCQs, it becomes easy to overcome your fear of NEET UG Physics paper. Also, more and more mock test paper practising will increase the chances of your success in NEET UG Physics paper. Stick to a fruitful and healthy study pattern, make smart strategies, take breaks, eat good, rest enough and believe in yourself.
